Twickenham Cricket Club may face a fight to retain the services of left arm seamer Gurjit Sandhu following his release from Middlesex CCC this week.

The 23-year-old came through the ranks at Lord's, but he made just made 18 first team appearances and failed to appear in first class cricket in 2015.

Sandhu, whose brothers Arun and Sanjit also play for their club cricket on the Green, has played fro Twickenham for the past two seasons outside of his county commitments.

A move away from London for another county contract could see him quit the club for pastures new,w hile he could yert be tempted elsewhere in the Middlesex County League Premier Division.

“Saying goodbye to an outstanding young man who has come through the club’s youth structure is not something we enjoy doing," said Middlesex's director of cricket Angus Fraser.

“Gurjit has worked incredibly hard at his game. He is fit, strong and capable.

"The lack of first team opportunities has frustrated him and I believe he has the potential to play far more first team cricket at another club than he has for us.

“Hopefully he will get those opportunities elsewhere and everyone at Middlesex wishes him well for the future.”
